Naomi Campbell, Met Gala

It may be sacrilegious to mention this, but even the late great Alexander McQueen had his off days. It was probably on one of those that he designed the dress Naomi Campbell wore to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala, which coincided with the exhibition opening of the designer's work. The dress, evocative of a badly hemmed, early-'90s Romanian ice-dancing costume, swamped Campbell, who has the rare ability to carry off almost anything. Still, it was a McQueen, so perhaps someone had to wear it.
